Located in the prestigious Kamptal-Donau (Danube) wine region of Austria, the Rabl winery enjoys a wine growing tradition which goes back to 1828 and which is now under the careful eye of Rudolf Rabl Jr. The estate comprises 50 hectares around the hills of Langenlois. The vines are strictly pruned and yields are kept low to obtain good extract in the grapes which are harvested by hand. Temperature controlled fermentation and maturation takes place in stainless steel or in wooden barrels in a cellar that is located 7 meters underground.
Viticulture: Rabl's philosophy in their vineyards is that only the best grapes produce high quality wines. Rabl uses meticulous foliage treatment to ensure a more balanced aeration and exposure to the sun.
Vinification: The grapes are picked in the middle of winter, in sub zero conditions so that the grapes are frozen and their sugars are very concentrated. They are then pressed and separated from the must. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels for 14weeks and then aged in oak barrel for 10 months thereafter.
Tasting Note: Lovely aromas of sweet peaches and ripe melon with vanilla through to a richly textured palate. Beautifully balanced sweetness which is rich but not cloying with great length retaining freshness throughout.
Every day serving suggestion: Savoury foods such as pate and foie gras as well as desserts, particularly fruit desserts.
